I am an engineering major at Los Angeles Pierce community college. I have been for the last years working 40 hours a week in order to sustain and put myself through community college. After I transfer, I don't plan on working. Now, each semester due to my work schedule and life happening, I can only take two classes. So far these two classes have consisted of a hard science or math class ( Calculus 1,2 or Physics 101, Chem 101 etc.), and a general education class ( music, english 101, 102, philosophy, etc.). Although it was a bit tough, I barely managed a balance in life with those classes and achieved a 3.9 GPA. However, I am done with the general Ed classes. Now that's a good thing but it puts me in a dilemma because I only have hard classes from now on. This semester the only classes that I can take are Calc 3 and E&M. Some of my fellow classmates swear that E&M is one of the hardest courses on campus and Calc 3 does not fall behind, and I believe them because I took Mechanics and calc 2 already. These courses required a lot of my time. So I guess what I am looking for is someone that has taking Calc 3 and E&M while working 40 hours a week . Has anyone here been able to and if you did how was your life/college/work balance? Or should I just take one class in the meantime that I transfer? or if you can give me and advice on what to do it woud be awesome?
